A few weeks ago I took notice of a looming book fight between Richard Dawkins’ forthcoming The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution and Jerry Coyne’s book Why Evolution is True.
I gave Round One to Dawkins on the grounds of having a better title. Now Round Two goes to … Coyne!
His book has shown up on Newsweek‘s list of fifty books to read now. Quite an honor!
What’s that you say? Not really a fair fight since Dawkins’ book hasn’t been published yet? Cry me a river. Timing is everything.
